ITRC Letter Form 29
Death Reported in Error

Many people find out that they are victims of identity theft when they try to open a new line of credit.  This can be a shock.  This sense of shock can be even more overwhelming when you are told you are listed or somehow identified as “deceased”. 

ITRC Letter Form 29 is a sample letter which may be sent to a creditor, credit reporting agency (CRA) or governmental agency alerting them to the fact that you are not deceased.
